These allegations against Judge Kavanaugh have really upset me. He wasn’t my first choice for the Supreme Court, in fact, he was third in my estimation, although I understood why President Trump chose him.
Politicians, political activists and the media are still coming at him from every angle they can imagine in their stinking, evil, minds. The latest is that Judge Kavanaugh doesn’t have the “temperament” to be a Supreme Court judge. Never mind that Clarence Thomas spoke angrily for himself at his hearings, and became a stellar SC Justice.
Even the New York Times published an Op-Ed about his “temperament”. The title of the article is “An Injudicious Man, Unfit for the Supreme Court”, if you care to look it up; I won’t provide a link. Apparently they haven’t heard of RIGHTEOUS ANGER!
As an FB friend said, “An evil piece. Every leftist is an untouchable victim and if you defend yourself you’re revictimizing them. But conservative victims are sniveling brats. Never wonder how communism killed 100M.”
I have also seen innuendo in the press about Judge Kavanaugh’s fitness to coach young girls because he may be a pedophile.
My opinion? I think they are afraid that many, many, people will recognize that he is a human being who is displaying righteous anger, not a cardboard cutout of a “judge”.
Seen on Facebook:
A friend of mine posted a thing about how even if Kavanaugh is innocent, his getting emotional during the hearing shows that he doesn’t have the “temperament’ to be on the Supreme Court. My response got a little long, so I figured I would share it here:
Dude, sorry, but you’ve got no clue. I personally went through a tiny fraction of what this dude did and it is soul crushing. It’s a friggin’ nightmare. When you’ve got national news outlets running articles about how you’re an awful person, and thousands of complete strangers talking about how terrible you are, and any time you see your name pop up there’s immediately a bunch of comments from people who don’t know you at all repeating stories about what a sick, depraved, monster you are… that shit gets old.
I was just one minor writer who caused a stink in one minor part of the entertainment business, and I had dozens of news articles calling me the vilest things you can imagine. I had to notify my local sheriff’s department to prevent Swattings.
People my wife hasn’t talked to since high school were calling her to ask if she was okay, since she was married to an abusive hatemonger monster. (that one was particularly galling).
I’ve been on double dates with a gay couple, but thousands of strangers declared me a homophobe. I taught self defense to women for a decade, but thousands of strangers declared me a rape apologist. I grew up in a town that had few white people and served most of my mission in inner city Birmingham, but thousands of complete strangers declared me a racist.
The truth was irrelevant. I was the nail that stuck up, ergo I had to be knocked down.
They went after my kids. That still pisses me off. My own children couldn’t even use their real names online because they got attacked for the crime of having me as their father.
On and on, hundreds of examples.
And I was just one minor dude, in one minor squabble, that happened to get a tiny bit of media attention.
But the minute I react with human emotion, and get upset that they’re dragging my name through the mud, and trying to make it so that nobody in my industry will work with me, and getting me banned from events, and demanding boycotts, and posting lying ass reviews, and calling me the vilest things I can imagine JUST BECAUSE I DISAGREED WITH THEM…
Then, only then, do they talk about “tone” and “you sound angry” and my being upset only proves my obvious guilt.
And then people who’ve never been in the fire come along and lecture me about how I should be more civil.
This dude has gone through a process a thousand times worse, in a fraction of the time, and you expect him to remain cool? Ha!
How can ANYONE watch this man defend his family, his honor, and his reputation and not understand the horror his life has become over the past couple of weeks. How DARE they attack his “temperament”!
This is what I said on Facebook two days ago:
My thoughts on the Christine Ford testimony. It is possible that she is telling the truth [as she believes it]. It is also possible that she is mistaken about the identity of her attacker(s).
Every person – and that includes Judge Kavanaugh – deserves to be believed up and until it is proven that he is guilty of what he is accused of doing. In our country, the accused is innocent until proven guilty.
The accuser is being treated with kid gloves because she is a woman, and because it is politically correct. Period. Every lapse of memory and mistake in recounting the facts are being excused because of the time elapsed and supposed lasting trauma. Just an aside – why can’t she remember whether or not she provided her therapist’s notes to the Washington Post reporter? That was what – two months ago?
For those women who disagree with me, I have only one thing to say. If it was your husband or your son being accused of sexual assault that he says he was innocent of committing, and would lose his job, or a promotion, or be kicked out of school or even jailed, would you insist on presumption of innocence for him? Or would you just “believe the woman”?
